Cranberry Cream Recipe

This delightful gelatin cream brings Christmas meals to a happy ending. It's not heavy, and I relish its zesty goodness.

  • 2-1/2 cups orange juice, divided
  • 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) raspberry gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 to 2 medium navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
  • Corn syrup and sugar


  • 1. In a saucepan, combine 3/4 cup orange juice, cranberry sauce and gelatin. Mash and cook over medium-low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in remaining orange juice. Chill until mixture begins to thicken, about 2-1/2 hours.
